Quotes

[first lines]
Eddie 'Gonzo' Gilman: In the past week, I blew my chance to go to college, I lost all my friends, and I almost ruined my parents' marriage. The one girl I ever cared about will probably never talk to me again. And I... I also got my face kicked in, but... after everything I've done, I probably got off easy.

Disappointing
6 August 2016 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

The general idea for the movie is not bad, although fairly typical and clichefilled... And boasting of stereotypes.

About students rebelling against the system.

I usually enjoy these sorts of movies but I didn't like this too much.

A big issue was the main character, he's supposed to be the typical lovable 'loser' but he comes across as a big of a arrogant douchebag as the people he is rebelling against half the time.

In the beginning we see him making fun a out of a disabled girl when his friend claims that he has the hots for her, saying that she is like the female version of the elephant man etc.

I mean, this is the guy that we are supposed to root for and think is the champion of the underdogs? Occasionally it gets some things right, but not very often.

I really like Zoe Kravitz usually but she couldn't save this movie, but I suppose she didn't have much to work with.
